There’s no doubt that corporations are thinking differently about climate risk and action. But are they making real progress?

This week, we have two conversations on the murkiness of corporate sustainability.

We’ll talk with Siduja Rangarajan, a senior investigative data reporter, about the creative accounting that is inflating the emissions reductions of large companies. She and journalist Ben Elgin recently dug through 6,000 climate reports – and found that the world’s biggest companies may be failing to account for 24 million cars worth of emissions.

We’ll also hear from Joel Makower, co-founder of GreenBiz Group and co-host of the GreenBiz 350 podcast. He’s been covering corporate sustainability for nearly three decades. We talk about what is actually making an impact in corporate sustainability – and what is still holding it back.
